So, a combined post- a DIY and a Giveaway. First, I will show my DIY. Ruffly Headband!
You will need:
Aprox 1/8th yard of lightweight fabric
Needle and thread
Cut 10 of the fabric into squares roughly 3 inches across and 10 into roughly 4 inches across. Sizes don’t really matter, really, the rough edges add to it’s charm.
Then fold those squares into quarters:
Trim them round, don’t be afraid to cut off quite a bit of fabric, you don’t want the ruffles too big.
Once you’ve cut them all into rounded quarters they should look something like this:
Then take one of the squares, pinch it up like so:
Then take one of your other squares, and pinch it around the outside of that one:
Then starting somewhere around the center of the ribbon sew it laying flat:
There are about 10 ‘flowers’ on my headband, sew them sort of pointing alternative directions, to give it lot of fullness.
Sew them all on, and tada, a ruffly headband!
